Kove’s charming and colourful semi-autobiographical film tells the tale of a seven-year-old girl with unconventional parents who envies other normal Norwegian families of the 1960s―and the unexpected drama that occurs the summer she and her sisters ask their parents for a bicycle.

Torill Kove directed the 2006 Oscar®-winning short The Danish Poet, as well as her Oscar®-nominated debut film, My Grandmother Ironed the King’s Shirts. In The Danish Poet, we follow a curious and existentially-anxious poet named Kaspar as he searches for the meaning behind the events in our lives, from birth to death and everything in between.

In My Grandmother Ironed the King’s Shirts, we meet the filmmaker’s own grandmother and hear her tall tales from WWII. In the process, we find a curious overlap between fact and fiction, realizing the truth lies somewhere in between.
